Fantasy Islam is an imaginative construct of Dr. Steve Kirby, and he is no stranger to me. I was there in the same boat 15 years ago.
I don’t claim to be a
scholar, nor do I claim to be an authority on Islam, but I do claim that I have
investigated Islam thoroughly and continuously learning. I have invited criticism of Islam, Quran and the prophet, have discussed with many, and have
found answers. I did not have to choose to be a Muslim, there was no need for
me to be one, however, I decided to choose a religion for me and Islam suited
me for two reasons – I knew and had re-learned a lot about it, and it
is an inclusive and pluralistic faith. Let me be clear, had I
studied other religions with the same intensity, I would have found value in
each one of them and would have chosen any one.
I will be responding to the following article by Dr. Kirby as I have responded before to many such misunderstandings at the site www.Quraantoday.com.
Fantasy Islam is an imaginative construct of Dr.
Steve Kirby, and he is no stranger to me.
I was there in the same boat 15 years ago and did not like what I read
or heard about parts of Islam and Quran.
I did not call myself a Muslim and had nothing to do with Islam or Quran.
I did not hate or disliked any religion; I was too pluralistic for that.
What changed all that? I will have the article ready in a week. If you wish to receive the article, please write in your email address in the email box on the top right hand corner of the site www.TheGhousediary.com
